With the announcement of Meltdown & Spectre and previous malware infections such as WannaCry and Petya, attacking a single system at a time is no longer the status quo.

With current patching attempts against Meltdown & Spectre malware, new vulnerabilities keep getting introduced on top of the existing ones. With the dawn of Windows 10, Microsoft has introduced a more tedious and somewhat risky method of patching Operational Technology (OT) environments in the default configuration.

Traditionally, engineers could configure patching for manual intervention and control. Windows 10 in itself, in a default configuration, is a new threat to OT systems and introduces further risk to these digital environments.

Advanced threat actors will exploit vulnerabilities in the digital environment to compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of multiple applications in the organisation at once and use this information to craft more extensive and more sophisticated attacks against your digital environment.

Advanced threats, advanced persistent threats and sophisticated attacks are terms used to describe attacks launched against Information and Operational Technology environments where the threat actor/s carrying out the attack are highly motivated and the attacks used are highly sophisticated to infiltrate and compromise an organisations information and data assets.

Along with the malware attacks, the notoriously discussed insider threat, whether malicious or not, is a critical threat to your digital ecosystem. These insider threats play a significant role in these sophisticated attacks being successful. How well do you know the people in your organisation? Stuxnet was a great example of this. The presentation will take you on a journey to discuss these advanced threats, what they are and what you can do to mitigate these risks from arising from these advanced threats in your digital environment. No solution is perfect, but every little bit helps.
